Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports mission statement: At Ogden, we will provide a positive, safe, responsible and respectful environment in which all students have the opportunity to become positive leaders in their school and community.
Peter S. Ogden is a Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports school. PBIS is an approach for supporting students’ academic success by making schools safer and more supportive for all students. The Ogden staff reinforces and recognizes students who are being safe, respectful and responsible at school. Red cougar paw tickets are given to students who are meeting behavioral expectations.
In kindergarten through second grade, each classroom has a special red cougar paw jar. Every Friday, teachers draw four red cougar paws, and those students choose a reward from the prize cart. In third through fifth grades, students save up cougar paws and can trade them in for a reward at the student store on Friday.
